Spoiler: The movie that is fascinating everyone.

3. It's the second of the six movies that were announced after the Walt Disney Company acquired Lucasfilm Ltd., the producer of Star Wars films.

The upcoming films are:

* Star Wars: Episode VIII: 2017.

* A yet unnamed Han Solo film.

* Star Wars: Episode IX: 2019.

* And there are rumors about a Boba Fett film, but it has not been announced yet.

4. It is NOT a film from the saga.

Unlike the other seven films, this one is not an episode, but a story that is part of the expanded universe. However, you'll see many familiar sights, like this AT-ST Walker.


8. Rogue One is the first Star Wars film that doesn't feature an original score composed by John Williams.

For this film, Michael Giaccino takes on the task. He recently composed the scores for Dr. Strange and Inside Out, among many others.


9. This movie features several new types of stormtroopers, including the fearsome DEATH TROOPERS.

The death troopers are taller and stronger, and do the dirtiest work on behalf of the Empire.

10. Sorry, but there are no Jedis in this one.


After Anakin became Darth Vader, the Jedis were (mostly) extinct (until a "new hope" came along, that is). However...part of this story takes place on the moon Jedha, which is rumored to be the original home of the Jedi knights.
